Lifelong Ohio State fan. Born and raised on the Ohio River on my grandpappy's farm where I learned two important life lessons: 1, Always treat people how you'd want to be treated. 2, Three yards and a cloud of dust! One of my earliest memories as a child is watching OSU game replays on the local WOSU channel with Paul Warfield announcing. I grew up in southern Ohio and have lived all over the state including Chillicothe and Cleveland. I've been known to scream at the TV when Ohio State plays. I go all in every game hence why my screen name is IN ALL CAPS. When Ohio State loses I am sick to my stomach for several days afterward. When they win it's like freaking Christmas. I hate Michigan. I hate them more than Khan hated Captain Kirk. Michigan sucks. I also hate the SEC. Go Bucks!


  • SPORTS MOMENT: My best personal sports moment was my 1 tackle in high school in the 1989 OHSAA Division IV state championship game at Ohio Stadium on the old field turf. To play an actual game on the same turf Woody walked on will always be the greatest sports moment of my life. That and OSU's 2002 national championship game win over Miami. I cried tears of utter joy after that win.

I chuckle at the grammar complaints the most. I seriously doubt anyone who busts DJ for comma splices has a Ph.D. in English and is flawless with their own grammar. As for his writing style, he must be doing something right to get reactions out of people. That's always the sign of good writing. I think everything he types is gold. Keep up the good work.

It's simple. OSU is one machine with 9 different moving parts. One breaks down it stops the system. The pass defense broke down. We saw the result. My only worry is the pass defense getting fixed but something else breaking down. Don't want to think about it.

Very good group of young people that I'm looking forward to work with. They come in on Sunday for good and we start practice on Monday. 

Got a warm and fuzzy tingly feeling reading that :)

In his defense I think he's improved over the last 2 seasons though not to the level that we all hoped he would. I also think that he is probably at or close to his ceiling so I am not expecting him to come out and post a double double every night and dominate the B1G. In fact I could very easily see him lose playing time as a senior with the new talent we have coming in. The Buckeyes in recent seasons have played better with a smaller lineup and with Russell and Lee coming in that's a very real possibility. Still, it will be good to have him come off the bench, especially when the Buckeyes face someone with a 7-footer.

Recruiting is a group effort and Meyer is our ace in the hole, but I agree that Zeke's dad helps a great deal. As a parent himself, he can offer recruits and their families valuable insight into how OSU treats his son and his family. That resonates loudly with a player's parents for sure.

Burns my ass when I read, "He's only a 3-star." This has been said a million times before, just because they're 3 stars doesn't mean they're terrible and some kind of reject. We all know ESPIN manipulates their rankings to suit their SEC contract. Most times that list is WAY off and that list DOES have some sway over the other rankings. Any list that wouldn't have the likes of James Laurinaitis, AJ Hawk or Malcom Jenkins among their top players is full of garbage worthy of being burned. Urban knows talent better than anyone. Very glad to have all of these kids and love how excited they are to be Buckeyes. That's the best part for me.

I was never in the military, but everyone knows this kind of "tearing down and building back up" has been a cornerstone of training for over a century. Yeah I know, this is a marching band and not the Army. But to be the best at anything you have to have a level of discipline and efficiency that is above everyone else. I get that kind of culture. It has a purpose. If she was sexually harassed that's one thing. If she just couldn't handle getting yelled at that is something else entirely. I have a feeling we're never going to know the entire story. No doubt lawsuit(s) are coming, too.

I was only exposed to it for a minute. The longer you read it, the dumber you get.

Comment 25 Jul 2014

When talking about this century, yes, 2010 at Wisconsin sucked the worst because of what it signified. No B1G title, not national title game appearance after spending half the season at No. 1. That game STILL does not compare to the 1998 Sparty game, however. That one made me so sick I missed work.

I'm bored so I read it. My IQ dropped 20 points.

9Route's dinosaur eating ice cream would sell well, too.

I once met the guy that played Stefano from Days of our Lives. He was in here in Tampa. He was much less drama than this.

That was my first thought. Torrance Gibson!

Who goes to 5 weddings in 5 straight weeks? Is that guy a wedding crasher or something?
